Yes it i telling. It shows a young black kid who doesn't know he has only minutes to live, doesn't know there is a madman out there waiting to murder him.
You still harping on the pictures in the media from over a year ago? Do you really think that has anything to do with the murder of Trayvon?
Trayvon is the one who made the poor decision to turn it physical.

This is a lie. If a 911 call is warranted it means it is an emergency. You don't call someone else and ask them to call 911 for you. If that had happened, Zimmerman would not have been able to answer the 911 operator's questions.

Try again, this attempt was worthless.

As usual you do not know what you are talking about.

Zimmerman is the one who exited his vehicle and chased the unarmed boy down then shot him to death.

It was the routine for concerned residents and volunteers. They reported suspcious activity to George.

Sweating doesn't mean you're guilty. Evidence does. And there is no evidence presented so far that can prove Zimmerman did anything wrong.
I'm sure that if Zim didn't have his firearm to protect himself and Martin was on trial for murdering Zimmerman, he wouldn't have a drop of sweat. What does that tell you?
You must have missed the part where the lady testified that NW were not to be vigilantes but were to CALL 911 and let trained officers take check out any suspicious person.

Eyes and ears, not vigilantes.

Trayvon had the right to defend himself from the man who had been following him and stalking him. The man who murdered him.

Self-appointed, huh?
"Wendy Dorival, former coordinator of the Sanford Police Department's neighborhood watch program, testified how she had worked with Zimmerman to set up a watch in his neighborhood.
When asked by prosecutor John Guy if neighborhood watch participants should follow or engage with suspicious people, she said no.
"They are the eyes and ears of law enforcement," Dorival said. "They're not supposed to take matters into their own hands."
Similarly, Donald O'Brien, president of Zimmerman's homeowners association, said it was his understanding that neighborhood watch members are supposed to "stay at a safe distance" and "let the police handle it."
But Dorival said she was impressed with Zimmerman's professionalism and dedication to his community.
"He seemed like he really wanted to make changes in his community, to make it better," she said."
So? He appointed himself Neighborhood Watch captain.

According to an English study Pot kills brain cells as well as alcohol. Unless you are ill, and it can help with nausea, why would you use it?

If George is found innocent, many violent thugs will have a new excuse to steal TVs as they loot stores and rob. They won't even have to call them Flash Mobs and be ignored by the main stream media, which only makes it news when it is white on black crime.

If Trayvon had a brother, he'd look like the guy in this video. And this is why George reacted the way he did:

If only this young mother had been so lucky. OK, who wants to bet the violent thug has a rap sheet? And IF THE THUG HAD BEEN ATTACKED INSTEAD BY A WHITE PERSON, they wouldn't be trotting out his cute kindergarten pictures.
